Corporate Bias Rating

Expand Summary

Risk Level:

Rating - Caution
Medium Risk


Rite Aid fired an employee for violating store policy by having a weapon while at work and plans to sell abortion pills at certain pharmacy locations. By complying with Human Rights Campaign’s controversial demands, Rite Aid increases the risk of dividing employees, alienating customers and harming shareholders. The company provides a benefits package for employees which covers transgender medical procedures for covered employees and dependents, including children. It also uses sex and gender ideology criteria in marketing, and philanthropic support. Rite Aid forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. The company has pledged a $1 million investment to its Racial Equity Initiative. However, Rite Aid does not appear to discriminate against charitable organizations based on views or beliefs. For these reasons, Rite Aid receives a Medium Risk rating. Note: Rite Aid has plans to dispense abortion pills at some of its pharmacies. It is unclear if the pharmacy will allow for religious exemptions for pharmacists that object due to closely held beliefs.
